You must attend the recitation in which you are registeredEach student enrolled in MATH 1190 is also registered in one of the five recitation sections (A,B,C,D,E). Some students are attending recitations other than the one they are registered for. This is causing some recitations to be overcrowded, and therefore it cannot continue. You must attend and write the quiz in the recitation in which you are registered. If you attend a different recitation without obtaining permission from your instructor, then you will not be allowed to write the quiz. Do not risk being turned away and receiving a zero on a quiz  make certain to attend the correct recitation. [Note that as of 3 Oct, the Thursday recitation (4pm) only has 5 students registered in it. If you would to switch into this recitation, then please speak with your instructor.] 
Recitations B and C (Fridays 8:30 and 11:30) For these two sections there is a strict no scent policy. For the sake of others, and in accordance with university regulations, students are required not to wear perfume, aftershave, cologne, hair spray scented shampoos or deodorant.
